Arupalakshmi – About Goddess Arupalakshmi form of Goddess Lakshmi

Arupalakshmi is a form of Goddess Lakshmi that is worshipped in the surrounding area of the sanctum sanctorum in the world famous KamakshiTemple in Kanchipuram. There are two versions associated with the Arupalakshmi form.
Legend has it that during the churning of ocean, Samudra Manthan, the body of Bhagvan Srihari Vishnu turned blue due to the poison emitted by Snake Vasuki who was used as the rope.
Goddess Lakshmi was amused to see the change in the skin tone of Srihari Vishnu and made fun of Him. An angry Vishnu cursed Goddess Lakshmi to turn ugly (Arupa). Thus she became Arupalakshmi.
Goddess Lakshmi who felt bad went to the abode of Goddess Kamakshi who asked her to stay on the left side of Her.
It is said that the kumkum that is offered to Goddess Kamakshi, which is then given to devotees, is smeared on the murti of Arupalakshmi. The belief is that the Goddess regains her beauty each time.
Arupalakshmi is worshipped for prosperity and for solution to all financial problems.
